Does Wali have to be present for Nikah?
Online marriage, court marriage, and nikah online do not require a wali. In the case of Wali on the bride or groom’s behalf, then that would be great, but in the event there is no Wali, Online Nikah can still be arranged.
Many Middle Eastern countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, and Iraq, require ‘wali’ for brides. However, this is not the case in Pakistan. It is not required to have a wali for an online marriage in Pakistan (Nikah). In keeping with the new section added to Pakistan’s Nikkah Nama, the couple must designate a vakeel, a proxy, an attorney, or a representative.
Is it possible for a Muslim girl to marry without WALI?
Without the consent of a wali, Muslim women may take part in a valid Nikah/wedding on their own volition.

“Men and women in Islamic law have the right to contract marriage voluntarily, and Islam’s Constitution safeguards their matrimonial life under Article 35”.
Can you marry without witnesses?
Right Law Associates can arrange a witness for you if you do not have any, or if you do not have witnesses to proceed with your Online Marriage.
For an online marriage or nikah, how many witnesses are needed?

Online Marriage (Nikah Online) Through Attorney/Proxy
Obtaining Nikah papers and registering their marriage/Nikah is possible for citizens of Pakistan who appoint an attorney who will do the work for them.
Registration of Online Marriage or Online Nikah in Pakistan
The registration of Nikah online / online marriage has become mandatory in Pakistan. Pakistani citizenship is not a requirement for both female and male candidates. Both spouses must be Pakistani nationals living abroad so they can register their marriage (Nikah) online in Pakistan. If either of the spouses is Pakistani and the wedding is solemnized there, the marriage must be registered in Pakistan.
Complexity Of Online Marriage (Nikah Online) In Pakistan
Online nikah or online marriages might seem easy, but they can be tricky if you do not engage an experienced family lawyer. Due to the fact that two countries are involved in the Nikah/Marriage activity online, both countries’ laws and requirements need to be considered. We participate in online nikah/marriage (shaadi) alongside government authorities. Performing an online Nikah or marriage in Pakistan may require you to prepare documents for another country. You may lose your online nikah/marriage (shaadi) if you make a small mistake in any step of the process.
The importance of hiring an experienced and professional online shadi lawyer cannot be overstated. Hiring an online nikah/marriage (shadi) lawyer who doesn’t understand the process in-depth might lead to them misguiding you or omitting a crucial step. Pakistani nikah (marriage) online is considered more delicate than conventional marriage. Thus, mistakes or negligence are not allowed.

Q: Who will be the wali in Nikah?
There are several meanings associated with the Arabic word wali.
The ‘Wali’ is someone with authority, a guardian, or a position of authority over someone; in Islamic law, the Wali is specifically “a person authorized by the bride to conclude a marriage contract and to select the groom for the bride”.
The bride, groom, and wali (male guardian) of the bride must consent for a Nikah (marriage) to be valid. Hanafis, on the other hand, claim that wali’s permission is not needed for the Nikah.
Walis are typically the bride’s father or, if the latter is absent, the groom’s grandfather or brother. As wali mujbir, a qazi can be a father, brother, or spouse (a mahram) if you do not have any Muslim relatives.
